Israel's military forces have been put on high alert after Iran threatened to retaliate over the bombing early Monday of an air base in central Syria.

Together with Russia, " Iran was a vital ally of Syria's president Bashar al Assad, supporting his administration militarily, economically and politically since a 2011 rebellion turned in to a civil war.

Iranian official says Israel's alleged actions in Syria may prompt Iran to respond

The bodies of the Iranians, described as military advisers, had been flown back to Iran and funerals would take place later on Tuesday, Tasnim said.

In a meeting with military commanders on Sunday, Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei expressed confidence that enemies would fail in any confrontation with Iran. One of the dead was identified as a colonel in the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps' air force.The Syrian media claimed that Syrian forces intercepted eight out of the 20 missiles launched at the site.

"We will stand by Syria's government against any foreign aggression". On Tuesday, the Iranian foreign ministry, Mohammad Javad Zarif, disregarded the accusations, calling Mr. Trump's examination that Iran and Russian Federation shared liability to the attack a "cheap shot".

"The Zionist regime and the U.S. have in different stages rushed to the scene to boost the morale of terrorists", he said, according to Iran's Press TV. Iran "has consistently condemned use of chemical weapons by anyone (and) is itself the victim of their use by Saddam with United States support", Zarif wrote on Twitter, referring to chemical attacks during Iran's war with Iraq in the 1980s.
